Although we had difficulties with the Viking-arranged flight reservations to France, the rest of the vacation was EXCELLENT! The cabin was just roomy enough and the accommodations were first-rate. The food was superb. I especially appreciated the fresh local fare and the extra effort that the galley staff put in to make sure everything was as fresh as possible. The meal service was excellent. The service staff were courteous, efficient and charming, for the most part. Shore excursions were very good, although some of the docents were a bit "long-winded" and took more time than we expected, leaving little or no time for anything other than the formal tour, such as visiting other sites, shopping or eating at a local restaurants. Our captain was wonderful - she was amazingly skilled and fully in command. The respect for her among the crew was obvious. It was a real treat to have a woman in charge!

Very nice. Neat and clean. Although our cabin steward was ill for a few days, the room was still well attended, with other staff jumping in to help wile he was ill.
